Episode #181 – A Texas Sized 10-4

Episode181

A collapse in Texas as the Dallas Stars lose eight in a row and their playoff hopes are slipping away fast.

Geeta, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to discuss the Vancouver Canucks signing Hobey Baker favourite Adam Gaudette. The NCAA star is expected to see some ice time in Vancouver wearing #88 during the final games of the regular season.

They also discuss the collapse in Dallas. Are the Stars just not good enough? Perhaps a lack of bottom six depth or a back end just not good enough next to other teams in the West? Or is Ken Hitchcock to blame? It has been a rocky road to say the least.

Since being traded to San Jose, Evander Kane is really flourishing. Twelve points in twelve games. The “controversial” player seems to have finally found a team and a veteran core to thrive with.

Also this week, Connor McDavid is lighting it up in garbage time, does it matter? We answer some great twitter questions and learn some more devastating news regarding draft picks in Cow Town!

Geeta, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to talk about the Canucks’ chances winning the draft lottery, Thatcher Demko being kept down in Utica by an interesting person and Rasmus Dahlin on Vancouver sports radio.

They discuss the race for the Hart Trophy. Who is deserving for it? Which NHL’er is the most valuable to their team’s success? Is Nathan MacKinnon a lock? Or will someone from an eastern conference team steal the crown?

Episode #179 – …And Brad Marchand As “The Kool-Aid Man

Episode179

Brad Marchand is no longer reformed, the Canucks can’t score goals and Alex Ovechkin and Patrik Laine are trading 40 goal seasons.

Geeta, P Mac and Ryan join you this week to discuss the scary scene at Rogers Arena last Monday night, which saw the end of Brock Boeser’s Calder Cup bid as well as his season. They also discuss the teammates who followed him to the hospital.

They also discuss Alex Ovechkin having another 40 goal season. Could he play long enough to pass Wayne Gretzky’s goal scoring totals? Breaking one of Wayne’s records sounds like an impossible feat, but there is a solid chance he could.

Brad Marchand is up to his usual tricks. Embellishing fines, dangerous collisions and suspensions have returned to his game following nearly two seasons of squeaky clean hockey. What needs to be done with Rat Boy?

Finally, the gang answers question from Twitter, from going to Vancouver Canucks games to a couple great “Would You Rathers”, as well as Ryan’s new career as a professional Bachelor Party Partier

Enjoy!

Episode #178 – Vanek, Jimbo & The Raging Alpacas

Episode178

The trade deadline has come and gone, so has Thomas Vanek and man oh man were Vancouver Canucks fans unhappy about it!

Ryan, P Mac and Geeta join you this week to discuss the big deals made last week. No, not just Thomas Vanek to Columbus for some warm bodies, but real, blockbuster trades! Like Paul Stastny to Winnipeg and what a stand up guy and captain Blake Wheeler is!

They also discuss the Ryan McDonagh heading to Tampa Bay, FOR A LOT. Did they overpay for the Rangers’ captain? Or will this gamble and blockbuster deal pay off for Stevie Y?

They also discuss Evander Kane heading to the west coast to, thankfully, San Jose. Can the locker room problem fit in with the big personalities in the Bay Area? Can Jumbo Joe lay down the law? Or will there be another tracksuit in the shower?

Finally, the gang discuss Boston’s unfortunate luck with injuries, who won the NHL trade deadline and and answer some questions from Twitter!

And congratulations to Mike Schalin who won the Brock Boeser Canucks jersey with his entry as well as Chels, who won a Canucks jersey shirt of her chosing with her entry!

Enjoy!
